About Emma & Tom

Hello! We are Emma and Tom. Lifetime dog lovers, owners and experienced sitters. We have recently moved from our little flat overlooking Victoria Park in Canton, from which we have made lots of new canine pals providing boarding service through DogBuddy over the past 3 years. Thanks to the volume of bookings we've undertaken, it's helped us to save for a deposit on our very own house on Barry Waterfront.

We live in a 3 bedroom townhouse, with an enclosed back garden and a large first floor window for your pup to watch the world go by. On the weekends, we sometimes like to get out for longer walks farther afield, like an afternoon at the beach. If more content on comfort, we’re more than happy to spend a Sunday bundled up on the sofa and keep your canine company! We have access to some great walking hot spots - just 10 minute walk from Barry Island and The Knap. If your dog loves an adventure, we do enjoy hopping in the car up to the other beaches in the Vale.

We're happy to accommodate your trusty canine, whether it be for a few hours one day, or a couple of nights. Despite working during the week we work relatively flexibly meaning we can accommodate most Day care, Boarding and Dog Walking arrangements; (Tom is available every weekday afternoon and off Wednesdays and Thursdays, While Emma is available for early weekday morning walks and off on Saturdays and Sundays).

It is important to us that you to feel comfortable in the knowledge that your precious pooch is in safe hands. With that said, we do encourage owners to come meet us prior to bookings, especially extended breaks. This gives you the opportunity to see if we are suitable sitters and, more importantly to, gives your dog time to get to know us.

Thank you for considering us. See you soon :)

    Emma and Tom are a lovely, caring couple who looked after Jerry very well. He seemed to have had a great time with them and was very happy when I picked him up. Would highly recommend these guys if your dog is a little nervous or easily stressed out. Thanks guys!

    This was Poppy’s first stay with Emma and Tom and she loved it there she was so calm and happy when we went to pick her up compared to another dog sitter we tried in Barry. They were brilliant with Poppy she was a bit sicky when she arrived (possibly stress) they handled it very well and kept us updated with how Poppy was whilst we were away. I would recommend!
